April 9: Optotraffic is currently deploying the nation’s most extensive portable speed camera system. Located in Prince George’s County, Maryland, the rollout is scheduled over a 12 month period. When complete, it will include 72 portable speed camera units protecting several hundred schools in the County. The end of March marked the half-way mark in deployment and 36 cameras were up and operating. To date, they have protected students at more than 70 schools.
April 2: Optotraffic is currently deploying the largest array of portable speed cameras in the U.S. in Prince George’s County, Maryland. We were pleased to see more dramatic proof that our cameras reduce speeding in school zones. The Police Department reports that in a comparison of a dozen deployments in January and February this year, speeding citations fell an average of 42.58 percent; from a low of 19 percent to a high of 75 percent! When drivers know that speed cameras are present, they simply slow down and that’s good for the school kids, crossing guards and the entire community.
